New This Year~My Hot Cocoa Bar

Well, I finally got it together this year and set up a "HOT COCOA BAR" in my kitchen. For the past two years, I have wanted to do this, but just never got around to it. So, it looks like 2014 is the year to finally have this fun festive bar at Coastal Charm. A few days before I started all my holiday decorating, I came across this bar cart that I had painted gold a few months ago. My plans for this vintage cart was to sell it at the shop, but it looks like it won't be leaving here anytime soon. It fits perfect in this spot, so I think it has found it's new home. Now, let's see what my hot cocoa bar looks like for the holidays.

                                                     Pull some vintage items together
                                                     then add some hot cocoa and
                                            have yourself a fun
                                                           "HOT COCOA BAR".

                                                 Bright festive colors are perfect
                                                         for the holiday season.

                                          This cute little fella, was the perfect touch
                                           to welcome all our friends and family to
                                                                      the bar.

                                            Everything you need for a yummy
                                            cup of hot cocoa is here waiting for

                                                    Goodies can be found to add
                                                            to your cup of cocoa.

A vintage Santa mug is a must for
this vintage lovin' gal.
                                  As you see here, I don't make up a cocoa mix,
                                  I rather have individual packs of several different

                                             Peppermint is one of my favorites.
                                             You can find it and other wonderful
                                                    flavors at your local Target.
                                                     My vintage silver tinsel tree
                                                     was the perfect size, so I knew
                                                     this is where I wanted it to go.

                                                               I never have a cup
                                                               without adding these.
                                                 A vintage milk bottle and
                                               mason jar always add charm.

                                                Thank you for coming by and
                                                 taking a look at my new bar.

Lovin it Linda! That cart is perfect for the job. And I can't do hot chocolate without marshmallows, either:) We just went to the Kriskindlemarket here in Chicago, it's a well known German Christmas festival/bazaar that takes place every year. My daughter and I got hot chocolate with whipped cream and it was the best I'd ever had! Have a blessed Christmas!

What a lovely idea, all those little finishing touches make it perfect.

Jemma@athomewithjemma said...

Oh Linda!
Super cute and super sweet-love it!

Lori said...

You know I love those napkins! Such a cute set up!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I LOVE this, Linda! Such a great idea and one I've wanted to do, too. I have a great metal stand that I have stored in the attic right now. It would be perfect for this, except I have no room! : (

I just bought some cute red and white straws, too. I have to figure out a way to do a coco bar somewhere in my kitchen because I have everything I need to do one.

Adorable! I'd love to have a cup with you!

The tree is the perfect finishing touch!

it doesn't get any better than a hot cocoa bar for Christmas time. I love the long legged guy hanging on the shutter- very cute and tasty post. Now, I need to go find some of that salted caramel chocolate! Yum.

Linda, this is so cute!! Love the vintage vibe, too :)

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

Love this -- it's been on my "list" of things I want to do for several years as well. I love the cart and the idea of using all of the vintage things - the mugs remind me of ones we had growing up.

Cute cocoa bar and LOVE that vintage silver tree! Brings me back to my childhood. We had the large one with the rotating color wheel!!

primrosesattic said...

fantastic. I want one.

Michele @ The Joyful Home said...

So fun! I put one together this year also, and we are all enjoying it. Thanks for sharing!

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

Very "sweet" Linda!!


I'm doing this, now that my grands are here; a cocoa bar is the best. I remember we had in the late 50's a tree like that. My mom loved it and that is back in Astoria-Queens, NY.
Merry C'mas.

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

I'll be right over! What a fun spot you've created, I can see why you didn't want to bring that cart to the shop. Love the old jars and the sweet Santa mug too. Thanks Linda for sharing at Vintage Inspiration Party.

It's a great look. I would like to set one up after Christmas at my house. I always need something to perk things up after Christmas.

Please drop by!
Happy Christmas!

Love your bar. The tinsel trtee and santa mugs looks fab. I did one last year but I just had a big basket on my worktop filled with goodies. It was very popular.
